2011 Figure, Fitness And Ms. International Winners

Nicole Wilkins, Adela Garcia and Iris Kyle victorious

Ladies action has just concluded at the 2011 Arnold Classic at the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Columbus, Ohio and the night’s big winners are Nicole Wilkins, Adela Garcia and Iris Kyle.

FIGURE It was a history making night as three Figure Olympia champions competed on the same stage for the first time: Jenn Gates (2008), Nicole Wilkins (2009) and Erin Stern (2010). But from the beginning of prejudging it was clear that it would come down to Wilkins and Stern, the rivalry that’s shaping the sport of figure. And by the looks of things, this won’t be the last time they heat it up.

Wilkins beat Stern here last year, only to lose her Figure Olympia title to her seven months later. Tonight, Wilkins got her revenge on the strength of her overall shape, proportion and a considerably tighter physique than she had at last September’s O. Wilkins is now tied with Mary Lado for two Figure International titles, putting her one behind Jenny Lynn’s record of three.

Ava Cowan placed third in her Figure International debut, with Felicia Romero in fourth, Cheryl Brown in fifth and Courtney West in sixth.

The top six qualify for the 2011 Figure Olympia.
